Sorry, sports-car fans with nostalgia for a certain era – Mitsubishi still insists on using the Eclipse name on a crossover. One that’s now restyled.

A plug-in hybrid version will be offered overseas, but not here. The next Eclipse Cross will go on sale in the States in the first quarter of 2021, following launches in Australia and New Zealand.

Styling changes include a new front bumper guard and a different layout for the lights.

The rear hatch and rear window get re-worked, and Mitsu claims this helps with rear visibility. The taillights are now taller and extend more towards the front of the car, and the hatch now has a hexagonal shape.

The interior is updated, with door trim that matches the seat color, a standard 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, volume and radio knobs for the audio system, and the removal of the touchpad infotainment controller.

The 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder carries over, as does all-wheel drive and the continuously-variable that has eight “speeds” and a sport mode.

That’s about it. Really. It really is a mild refresh, so mild that I might not make our informal minimum word count of 250. Unless I tell you about that time that I was at this seedy dive bar and there was this dude with crazy eyes looking for a fight and….

Yeah, that’s close enough. Anyway, there’s no news on pricing yet.
